For the fourth-consecutive week and the seventh time overall this season, Aliyyah Handford has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll, it was announced this afternoon by the league office.

The junior guard had yet another spectacular week for the Red Storm, averaging 20.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game in a 1-1 weekend for St. John’s, shooting 54.5 percent from the field.

Against Georgetown on Friday night, Handford registered 22 points, tied a career-high with six assists and pulled down five boards in a 74-57 win.  It was the Newark, N.J., native’s sixth-straight contest scoring at least 20 points.

In the Red Storm’s loss to Villanova on Sunday, Handford drained nine of her 16 attempts from the field, tallying 19 points, five rebounds and three assists.

St. John’s has a critical BIG EAST matchup this upcoming weekend, when the Red Storm travels to Seton Hall for a showdown with first-place Seton Hall.
